What's New? New Books From Build-a-Bear Grant

      Special Services students will be receiving new books as reading incentives and birthday presents, thanks to the Build-a-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation.  The Special Services Media Center and the Special Services Education Foundation received a $1000 grant from Build-a-Bear for the purchase of books to be given to students as rewards for participation in the Readers Club, which encourages students to read independently.  Students in eight classes from Ocean Academy and Cape May County High School were given the opportunity to reserve books of their choice that they will earn by doing three book reports each.  All Ocean Academy students will also have the opportunity to choose books for their birthdays. 

     The Build-a-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation is committed to making life more bearable for children, families and pets who are in need of a helping paw.  With the sale of each Paperback Pup – a special furry friend available in all BuildABear Workshop stores – one dollar is donated to First Book and other literacy programs throughout the United States and Canada.  Visit www.buildabear.com  for more information.
